hello everyone,

i joined this forum in the midst of my depression and helplessness. i was lost and felt like i was alone in the world. everything was chaotic around me, nothing made sense, and it seemed like i lost all hope for it to get better again.
because of this i stopped going to school and fell into an even deeper depression. my medication and therapy didnt help me and i honestly thought that id have to live like this forever if i didnt leave on my own accord.

but now i feel like i finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and i couldnt be happier. i havent cried in days or weeks, have found an apprenticeship for the next 3 years and am working on going outside and keeping in touch with my friends. i thought i lost all hope but obviously i didnt or else i wouldnt be here.
thoughts like "it cant get worse than how im feeling right now. it can only get up from here." and "you survived 100% of bad days up to this point, so you can survive this one too." helped me a lot in those times.
this depression is still not over, id be a fool to think that. im still scared that this is only a moment of hysteria in my depression journey but i have a purpose again and more importantly something to look forward to.

ive never felt as helpless and useless as in these 6 months but i think i found peace again.
ill try to take everything one step at a time and continue to work on my problems.


i finally believe in the saying "it always gets better if you persevere."

Fantastic to see a thread like this. You’re so right. It’s difficult to see light when you’re consumed by darkness. I’ve just replied to another thread with a chap saying how he feels he has no purpose, not a great job, living at home. That was me 9yrs ago. I now have different issues (!) but those original ones have changed through time, circumstance and growth. Nothing lasts forever, even this feeling.

Thank you. It’s so important to highlight.
